Two books of original blues harp tunes will be published this Summer, one for lever and one for pedal harp. The pieces contain key elements of distinctive blues styles and features of tunes by the greats. Some are guitar inspired, some piano influenced; all are fully intended to create a blues sound specifically for the harp! I will present them in a performance at the World Harp Congress in Cardiff on July 26, 2022.
Blues originals for harp coming out July 2022
Blues Harp method brewing...
My blues-for-the-harp method is in the making. It will serve up bass, comping and melody in various styles, including improv & transcription exercises, chord & scale learning, studies, a glossary of patterns/intro’s/endings, and more.
Give me a shout if you want to be informed when it comes out.
